Click Tab "Help" Qtcreator will hang



  • Hi,

    I am using Qtcreator version 4.2 running on Centos 6.7, when clicking the tab "Help", it will report GLX 1.3 or later is required,

    and the qtcreator will hanging.

    As GLX is a foundamental lib, is there any way to solve this issue by not upgrading the GLX lib version?

    Thanks,
    Le

    Same happens if you press F1 on some Class?
    Im not sure why help wants OpenGl.
    Normally its the welcome screen that is acting up.



  • Hi, mrjj,

    As tried, press F1 got the same warning message(GLX 1.3 or later is required),

    as a comparison test, using Qtcreator version 4.0 on the same centos 6.7 work normally,

    as checked, my glx version is 1.2.

    Thanks,
    Le

    Ok, so it really wants it. Besides rebuilding Qt help,
    im not sure there is
    a way to make it load it.
    Since its GLX i assume any tricks with LDD and export is not going to work.

    Give it a day or two. Many very good linux developers come here - someone might know
    how to use a newer version when dist/x server upgrade is not an option.

    I am using Qtcreator version 4.2 running on Centos 6.7, when clicking the tab "Help", it will report GLX 1.3 or later is required,

    So as error says, the newer version requires newer library. I think updating it might be the only solution.
